girls night live

Three of my dearest friends and I had a night out...just moms. :)
We headed to the Walton Arts Center for Girls Night Live after a yummy dinner at Chipotle.
It was great to end my Spring Break chatting with friends and hearing a clear word at the concert.

Laura Story closed with "Blessings"...
And what if trials of this life
The rains, the storms, the hardest nights
Are Your mercies in disguise?

Mandisa closed with "Stronger"...
When the waves are taking you under
Hold on just a little bit longer
He knows that this is gonna make you stronger, stronger!

I love all things that follow a plan. What teacher doesn't love a solid plan with a few alternatives just in case?!? But tonight I was reminded that my plan isn't always the best plan that God has in store for me...and certainly not according to my time preferences. May I choose patience with a perspective that seeks to find the blessing within the circumstance.

Hope you are having a fabulous weekend...make it count!



  1. Hi Lisa:

    You saw Laura Story FOR REAL?!
    "Blessings" has been my anthem this month.
    This post made my morning!

    Finding JOY in 6th Grade

  2. For REAL! ;-) Do you know her story? The "Blessings" song takes on a whole new meaning when you know why she wrote it. Laura Story has the sweetest spirit...hope you can see her in concert at some point.
